Eight-Day Culinary Trip in the Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast, with its whitewashed villas on gorgeous cliffs and red sunsets over the Mediterranean Sea, is a go-to destination for honeymooners in Italy. It’s isolated from major cities, and that far-flung feel adds to its appeal. Another major draw: its famous pasta. On this eight-day, seven-night tour, you’ll stay at Hotel Villa Romana in Minori, a small village, and learn how to cook fine Italian cuisine.

Dine on Classic Italian Dishes—and Learn to Cook Them Yourself

During your stay, you’ll have free rein to explore the area. When you return to the hotel, you’ll dine on a Mediterranean meal. Then the chef of the Hotel Villa Romana will lead a presentation and tasting of Southern Italian mainstays, including limoncello, lemon chou bun, neapolitan pizza, and baba. Meals are served in the hotel’s courtyard-style dining room with natural sunlight streaming in from overhead.

Optional Tours of the Amalfi Coast

While you’re free to check out the Amalfi scenery on your own, you also have the option of joining optional tours of nearby attractions for an additional fee:

Capri: Emperor Augustus laid claim to this enchanting island in AD 27; in the 20th century, it was taken over by artists, writers, and the rich and famous. Upscale piazzas and trendy cafes sit alongside Roman ruins and a rugged seaside.

Positano: Perhaps the most photogenic town on the Amalfi Coast, Positano started out as a fishing village and is now one of the most chichi places to visit. Its peach, pink, and terracotta villas are built vertically into a cliff wall. It’s a great place for jewelry shopping and dining.

Pompeii: One of Italy’s top tourist attractions, the town of Pompeii was literally frozen in time 2,000 years ago when Mount Vesuvius erupted, covering the city in ash. You can see paints still sitting in their pots beside unfinished frescoes, and cinder covers jars of fermenting wine at this archaeological site.

Minori: The orientation tour of Minori has stops at the archaeological Villa Romana excavations, a limoncello factory, a pasta-making factory, and a ceramic factory. Then its off to a cooking class, where each student receives a copy of all the recipes in a book made from Amalfi paper. Students also receive a certificate of completion and a ceramic gift.
